As summer gets closer, the time for refreshing, crisp cocktails has arrived and, what cocktail can evoke sunny times better than a Margarita? We love this Mediterranean Margarita cocktail recipe by Le Plancha, a modern and family run restaurant in Monkstown, specialising in Portuguese, Spanish and French flavours.
– 1 part Tequila
– ½ part Triple Sec liqueur
– ½ part lime juice
– 1 lime wedge
1. Chill your glass (the easiest way is to fill it with ice).
2. Put lots of ice and all of the ingredients into a shaker, then shake hard for about 30 seconds to chill the liquid really well.
3. Run a lime wedge around the outside of the rim of your glass before rolling the rim in salt.
4. Double strain the mix into the glass.
